Am I Screwed?

I have 5 cigars in a ziplock bag for a month today. I thought I had it humidified and such, but I found out today that the humidification pillow was not charged! I just charged it and put it back in the bag, but are my cigars in trouble?
I planned to smoke one tomorrow, but should I wait for them to adjust to the humidity?

    What do the cigars feel like?

    Dryish. I can't really differentiated them from other cigars I've owned.

    If they feel dried out, see if you can re-humidify them again, I'd wait a week and see what happens.

    if the air in your area has an RH of about 50% you may be fine. but i would toss them in the humidor for a bit to let them get back to where they should be.,

    The humidity has generally been about 48-60% in my area and I had the windows open most of the month, so that was reassuring.

    Looks like I'll be able to smoke one tomorrow =D

    good luck. hopefully they'll be okay but if not just throw 'em in the humi for a few months.

    Ditto on the humi. You can pick up a small desktop for pretty cheap. Let em rest for a week or two in a humi and you should be fine. OR get a Boveda 72% pack, throw em in a tupperdor or a GOOD ziplok bag for a week and you should be a-ok
